We are very excited to offer a course in the field of Contemplation and Energy Healing Work: The Five Wisdom (or Maitri, meaning “loving kindness”) Energy Practice. Based upon Chinese and Tibetan Five Element theory and contemplative (mindfulness) psychology, The Five Wisdom teaching describes five personality types, each arising from a unique elemental energy. Unlike other personality style theories, the Five Wisdom Practice joins an experiential component, involving a meditation practice in specially designed meditation rooms, to the theoretical framework to enhance the experience of each energy. This practice is extremely useful for personal exploration and growth and healing and dovetails beautifully with our Christian life and faith.
The course will consist of classroom work, done together, and also personal practice in the maitri rooms. You do not have to attend every class session to take the course: Just come to as many as you can during each three week block of classes to learn about the energy and share your meditation experience. During each three week block, the maitri room for that energy will be available for 45-minute personal practice times.
